We put our deposit down on our CT200h here in Seattle on 3/22. We've been given the option to buy two daybreak yellow and one white CT since that time...sadly we really are holding out for a red one.

Right now it sounds like the next allocation of CTs is getting reported to dealerships in about a week and then delivery should be another 2 weeks or so after that. Anyone in the NW hearing anything similar or different?

I was told April 21 would be the date that the dealers get the allocation list. I'm hoping my black/black CT200h will be on the list since I put down my deposit before the earthquake but will wait however long it takes to get exactly the car I want.

It's worth the wait. I hope you get yours soon!

Has dealer given you a VIN yet?

I'm in the Seattle area and waiting for a red/caramel interior/nav package.
I was told the dealership I am working with will get their list on 4/19.
Good luck.

Yup...nothing for us on the last allocation either. Fingers crossed for May 3rd!

BTW 7seattle...just got offered a NON-Nav Red w/ caramel CT Premium. Turned it down since we want a Red w/ black w/ Nav. But if you're flexible maybe give Lexus Bellevue a call...

Red/caramel gone before I had a chance to call back.

The salesman did call me last week, but 20 minutes later, when I called back he said it was gone.
Thanks for the heads up though.

Still waiting.......

I think the fact that I've now been offered 3 or 4 daybreak yellow CT200h by various dealers (not including your post) but no other colors are ever available would imply TO ME that Lexus needs to make fewer of that dang color and make more of the colors people actually want.

Someone in Lexus' marketing team dropped the ball when they recommended Lexus make a ton of that color at the expense of the others. Sorry, it's just too green in person, I've never seen a "daybreak" that color.

We sold 53 CT's in March and only three where daybreak. The rest are in Smoky, Matador, Starfire, Tungsten and the list goes on.

I was just at Bellevue Lexus yesterday getting my IS250 washed and saw a Red Premium Carmel Interior CT200h non NAV at the front of the dealership (where they originally parked the yellow one used for my demo drive). I have been patiently waiting 2 1/2 months for my black one but if your still looking for a red one it may be worth checking out.

I test-drove that red one twice last week. Salesman Jeff Bailey told me it's not for sale because it's still too necessary as a demo. The green/yellow one was being driven off the lot Thursday by its happy owner.

Sigh.

June's allottment of CT200h to our Lexus dealership was...1 non-Nav.

Sigh. At this rate I am wondering if Ford is going to release the Vertrek hybrid before I have the chance to buy a CT. Oh well. If so I save $10k.

Get the ship's name from the dealer and do a google search on the ship. You can track it all the way to the port. Adds to the excitement! Also you can get a better handle on when you can expect it at the dealer.

After 5 months, I finally got my Black/Black Nav LED Leather CT200h. For a current IS250AWD owner and former (traded in) 2006 Honda Civic Hybrid owner, my first impressions are the wait was well worth it. The car is much better powered even in Eco mode than the Honda Civic Hybrid was. The electronic / sound are a wonderful upgrade. Great job, Lexus!
